Earlier this morning I received my copy of the 50th issue of the Transformers Collectors' Club The Official Magazine. The cover homages Marvel's Transformers #22 which featured Menasor with various Marvel characters outlining the sides of the cover. This cover features Depth Charge's mug shot front-and-center with all of the Collectors' Club characters outlining the cover.

Inside the magazine itself, the following pages and information are revealed ...

  • Brian's Bytes and Bolts reveals that the Subscription figures have been delayed from China. They are estimating that the figures will ship right after BotCon. I'm assuming this means that the figures are being shipped over with all of the BotCon exclusives to save on transport costs. Because of this delay, they are unsure when the 2nd installment payment will be due for those of you who went with the payment option.
  • First look at Transformers Generations Deluxe Hoist (available 4th quarter). Hoist is a remold of Trailcutter. He features a new head and trades Trailcutters trailer topper/shield for a tow hook that appears to transform into Hoist's gun. No wings but I think we'll all be happy to have Hoist join our "Classics" ranks. I'm assuming this figure will be packaged with his Spotlight book in the upcoming deluxe/comic packaged series revealed at Toy Fair back in February.
  • The next two page spread features updated decos for the BotCon 2013 Machine Wars set. As far as I can tell, the only difference is Obsidian has undergone a major color change. Whereas he was a bright green with orange (transparent?) rotors, he now sports a color scheme that seems much closer to his Beast Machines cartoon counterpart along with (transparent?) red rotors. This should make many fans happy that Strika and Obsidian will be utilizing colors from the cartoon instead of one being from the cartoon and the other being from the toy.
  • Transformers Generations Magnificus from eHobby is revealed as a club exclusive! Pre-orders will be available at http://www.TransformersClub.com/shop from April 15th to May 8th. Price is currently listed at $90.
  • The comic continues the Beast Wars Shattered Glass theme. It introduces G2 Hero Megatron alongside some of Takara's Beast Wars II characters like the Seacons, Dirge, Thrust, and the Autorollers. Scylla is still female. :D
  • After the comic, we get a one page "The Transformers Menagerie - Part 2: The Dinobots"
  • Profile pages for Beast Wars Grimlock (Maximal) and Beast Wars II Dirge (Predacon)
  • The back cover features another installment of David Willis' Recordicons as well as two installments of Transformers I.Q.

The artwork for each character is from the box or promotional art for each toy.

Good news about Magnificus and Hoist! I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Obsidian's new colourscheme pleases me greatly.

Say whaaaaaa? Why G2 Hero Megatron? Unless the comic explains it, that makes no sense. :???: :???: :???:

If it's BWII characters, wouldn't Megastorm fit better than purple Hero Megs? That's just so weird of the Club to do that.

Why would he be? He fellow Deluxes Megatron, Orion Pax, Bumblebee, and Trailcutter (and likely Thundercracker) aren't gonna be.

Generations Hoist will be general retail. BotCon 2013 Hoist (a retool of Gen. Sergeant Kup), naturally, is not. :)

And I'm sensing a BotCon repaint: BWII Dirge out of Skywarp.

I think this is the same delay as before. We're just now getting more details on it.

But I'm not worried. No matter how long it's taken, I've never not received anything I've ever ordered from the Club. :mrgreen:

Found this description of his new colors on another site:

[quote]As it is the metallic teal ends up darker, the bright green dark teal, the bright orange highlights end up orange, the clear orange ends up reddish orange, the eyes bright green instead of red, and the blue stripes are now orange.[/quote]

I wonder if we can get a Gears or Huffer retool out of Orion Pax. And I still need a Skids retool out of Trailcutter.

The "Skids" we saw was merely Trailcutter's colors playing tricks with us. To Hasbro, Hoist is the Trailcutter retool.
